Great find! Adding the 2nd image, the plot thickens (or clarifies depending on where you stand on this).
2 different images, taken on 2 separate days from 2 separate vantage points both showing the same light source in approximately the same area on Mars but in 2 different areas of the image? Really? So we're supposed to believe that a cosmic ray struck on 2 separate days from 2 separate vantage points yet only affecting areas of the image that happened to show this spot?
The only thing keeping me from totally throwing game, set & match to this being an actual artificial light source on Mars is the fact that both images come from the same camera.
But even with that in mind, methinks Lucy has some 'splaining to do....

Maybe it's my eyes, but it seems to me rock is in front of the light source, partially blocking the lower part of the light source?

Gawd... This kind of thread really makes you wish that the scientific method were actually taught in schools as a holistic approach to life. Instead, we're treated to avalanches of stars on the first page because it looks cool therefore aliens, zilch attention to the follow-up, and Phage bashing, because man, that guy and all his honest research is such a buzzkill.
ATS has become so impatient and opinionated it's freaking terrifying.
